This Mission is under the direction of David Baron and the Rev. C. A. Schönberger, who for many years have been engaged in Mission Work among the Jews in different parts of the world, and are now devoting their time in the same work of preaching the Gospel to the people still "beloved for the fathers' sakes." They are assisted by other Hebrew Christians, who give proof that they are called of God to this peculiar work.

Its Aim Is

As the Lord shall enable and supply means, to bear witness for Chist to the Jewish people in all the lands of their dispersion, in order, by the preaching of the Gospel, to call out the "Remnant according to the election of grace," and to prepare the nation for the time when "The Redeemer shall come out of Zion" and "all Israel shall be saved."

Its Head-quarters

are in London, where we are endeavouring by means of private visitations, byspecial public leactures on the Missiaship of Christ, and by the post, to bring the Gospel of our Saviour to bear on the better-class of Jews in the city and west of London. In the East-end, among the measses of the poor, we have temporarily hired the Brunswick (formerly Zion) chapel, in the Mile End Road, where meetings are held on the Jewish Sabbath. Many families are visited in their homes, and hundreds are spoken with in the streets. At intervals we visit other towns in the United Kingdom where Jews are to be found, but our hearts are chiefly set on the masses of "The Scattered Nation" in Centeral and Eastern Europe, and, God enabling us, we shall as before, make missionary journeys abroad.

Its Character

is throughly unsectarian. All who are loyal to the Bible as the Word of God; all who, in these days of failure and declensio, cling to the grand old Protestant evangelical doctrines; all who out of a pure heart and in sincerity call Jesus Lord, and seek to do the will of our Father in heaven, are our brothers and sisters. we know of only one Church, "the general assembly of the first-born ones enrolled in the heavens"; and in the great work of evangelizing Israel in these "latter days," we wish to co-operate with all who abide by the foundation truths of our most holy faith.

The Workers and Work

depend entirely on the freewill offerings of the Lord's people. No one is personally appealed to for any money, and any artifice and worldy means for raising funds are avoided, as being unworthy of the cause of our great Master, Jesus Christ. We have resolved to trust only in the living and ever blessed God, whose is the silver and the gold, and in whose hands are the hearts of His own dear children, to incline and dispose them to do that which is well pleasing in His sight.
